Nomad Overdrive question.

I just bought a 2010 Nomad and am wondering if the 5th and 6th gears are both overdrives like the newer models? The gear indicator shows 6th as the only overdrive.

Yes your Nomad's 5th & 6th gears are overdrives.

If you want the ratio numbers, they are:
5th= 0.967
6th= 0.806
